medicaldoctorEWN reports that junior doctors have complained about government’s lack of organisation in the placement of medical graduates in public hospitals.  

Although most South African-born graduates have now been placed, there are still a few prospective interns who have not yet secured positions due to administrative errors.  The Junior Doctors Association of SA’s (Judasa’s) Farah Jawitz indicated:  “There was a lot of switching around and so what happened is permanent residents have not been placed but South African applicants have been placed.  Some instances in their spots, so there were a couple of permanent residents who were removed from their spots to allow for all the South African applicants to be placed first.”  Some junior doctors in Johannesburg were allegedly stunned to find that there was no accommodation secured for them at the start of their internship programmes.
